Data Breach - Your Organization Needs a Plan

The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse’s Chronology of Data Breaches lists 3,671 incidents affecting 607,295,463 records since 2005,1 including these three:

- A worker steals customer records containing credit card, bank account and other personal information. In its U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing, the company estimates that 8.5 million records are affected.

- A password-protected laptop containing former employee names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, and benefits information is stolen from a consultant’s trunk with an estimated 5,800 records affected.

- Cyber-pickpockets tamper with PIN pads in retail stores and steal banking information from checkout keypads. Ninety-four thousand records are affected. Taking steps to protect personal information can go a long way to preventing a security breach. No technology is failsafe, however.
